June Brown left almost £1 million in her will to be divided between her five children.
The 95-year-old actress – who was best known for playing Dot Cotton on ‘EastEnders’ between 1985 and 2020 – passed away in April and is survived by her children Chloe, Louise, William, Naomi and Sophie, with her late husband Robert Arnold.
According to The Sun newspaper, June requested that her estate be divided equally between her children.
June’s family announced her death in a statement in April.
They said: “We are deeply saddened to announce our beloved mother, June, passed away very peacefully at her home in Surrey on Sunday evening, with her family by her side. We would kindly ask that our privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”
An ‘EastEnders’ spokesperson said: “June created one of the most iconic characters in Dot Cotton, not just in soap but in British television, and having appeared in 2,884 episodes, June’s remarkable performances created some of ‘EastEnders’ finest moments. We send all our love and deepest sympathies to June’s family and friends.
“There are not enough words to describe how much June was loved and adored by everyone at ‘EastEnders’, her loving warmth, wit and great humour will never be forgotten. A very bright light has gone out at ‘EastEnders’ today but we shall all be raising a sweet sherry in June’s memory. Rest in peace, our dearest June. You will never be forgotten.”
